Google and Apple spend more on patents than on R&D

by: Simon HillOctober 8, 2012
In 2011 Google and Apple both spent more money on patents than they did on research and development. The result is stifling innovation instead of encouraging it and, as usual, we, the consumers, have to suffer the consequences in terms of higher prices and limited features.

Samsung says Apple patent verdict was tainted because of jury foreman’s misconduct

by: J. Angelo RacomaOctober 4, 2012
Samsung is still seeking other legal remedies to Apple's $1 billion patent infringement win, among these trying to shoot down the jury's decision because of juror misconduct. In a request to dismiss the verdict, Samsung says that jury foreman Velvin Hogan failed to disclose his bankruptcy filing in 1993, and the fact that he was sued by hard drive-maker Seagate, his former employer. Sounds far-fetched? Read on.

Apple & Samsung dominate: Japan’s electronics market becoming harder to survive in

by: nathanOctober 1, 2012
Innovation is a tough thing. In the electronics market, it's pretty unforgiving if you can't do it. Just ask Sony, Panasonic, and Sharp, once kings of the U.S and Japanese markets. But today, things are different as Apple and Samsung continue to undercut each other in the court and the showroom.

Apple vs Samsung trial: iPhone maker to ask for $3 billion in damages or triple the jury’s findings

by: Chris SmithSeptember 19, 2012
In late August Samsung suffered a crushing defeat in its first U.S. trial against Apple. The jury in the case found that several Android handsets infringe up to 6 out of the 7 patents Apple brought into play, and decided to award the iPhone maker $1.05 billion in damages.

Steve Wozniak: I don’t agree with the California trial verdict and I don’t think it’ll stick

by: AdrianSeptember 13, 2012
Steve Wozniak’s latest statements might raise a few eyebrows, especially to those that still thought he had remaining ties with Apple, a company that he helped build in the ‘70s. The Woz says that he “hates” the patent conflicts in the tech world. He also said “I don’t think the decision of California will hold. And I don’t agree with it – very small things I don’t really call that innovative.”

Why the Apple vs Samsung $1 billion verdict is correct and should stand

by: Chris SmithSeptember 10, 2012
The first U.S. Apple vs Samsung battle has ended in late August, with a surprisingly bitter defeat for the South Korean Android maker – surprising not because Samsung was found to infringe on certain Apple patents, but because of the nature of the total Samsung defeat.

Apple, Google secret patent talks revealed, “thermonuclear” war cooling down?

by: Chris SmithAugust 31, 2012

The main players in the mobile environment, are Apple and Google, which are fighting a fierce battle both in carrier stores for mind, market and profit share (although Google is yet to make any real money off of Android), but also in courts where an intense Apple vs Android war rages on.

Apple has sued the main Android device makers in the business, Samsung, HTC and Motorola, which in turned filed their own patent-based counter-claims against the iPhone maker. But it never brought legal action directly against Google. And Google stayed kind-of on the sidelines, watching the conflict evolve, and helping out only in certain [...]

Japanese court says Samsung did not infringe on Apple patent

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 31, 2012
Apple may have won a sweep in its California patent infringement case lodged against South Korean Samsung Electronics. But elsewhere, opinions differ, as the legal battles are not always won by the Cupertino company. A recent ruling by a Tokyo court has dismissed Apple's patent infringement claim against Samsung in Japan, saying Samsung did not infringe on Apple technologies.

by: Chris SmithAugust 30, 2012

Image Credit: CNET, Apple

The U.S. Apple vs Samsung lawsuit, in which the jury found Samsung to infringe on several Apple patents and awarded the iPhone maker over $1 billion in compensation, is casting a long shadow over IFA 2012, the Berlin-based trade show where Samsung has unveiled several new products, including the Android-based Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera.

But while we talk about these new Android devices, as well as other Android devices officially announced during the show, we inevitably hear more details, commentary and analysis on Samsung’s recently lost legal spat.

Now CNET offers a sneak peak at Apple’s legal bill in the [...]

One rotten Apple spoils the smartphone market

by: Simon HillAugust 30, 2012
Apple is the most valuable company in the world, and yet it is using patent litigation to bully its competitors. Are the huge profits justified? Can Apple stay on top as goodwill for the company dissolves?
